Default Duplicate File Menu Item - PDF

In Word 2003, I have two entries on the File menu that say "Create Adobe
PDF" -- and neither one works. With a Word document open, clicking on
either entry appears to do nothing at all.

I have Adobe Acrobat PDFWriter version 4.0, and I have no trouble printing
to it from any Windows application, including Word 2003.

A similar menu item appears in Excel 2003 only once, and it works
perfectly. I'm prompted for the name of the PDF file to write, and it's
done.

I'm reasonably certain that the duplicate entries are probably caused by
the fact that I've got the PDFWriter module stored in more than one
location, but the reason why the command does nothing in Word continues to
elude me.

Default Duplicate File Menu Item - PDF

If this is a free PDF creator that came with an early version of Acrobat
Reader, then it may not work with Word 2003. If you have a full version of
Adobe Acrobat (the current version is 7.0, so 4.0 would be fairly old), it
may be necessary to reinstall it in order to ensure that the Word add-in is
installed correctly. In general, though, versions of Acrobat before the
current one put a PDFMaker.dot template in Word's Startup folder that
provides the functions behind the buttons you have.

I suspect the add-in (which provides extra functionality) for version 4 will
be incompatible with Word 2003. It would be worth seeing if there is a
compatible update for this version. Otherwise you are limited to printing to
the driver.
In the meantime remove the old add-in
